High Protein Peanut Butter Cheesecake

A delicious, high protein dessert idea – Peanut Butter Cheesecake! This sweet treat has 20.7g of protein per serving, the perfect pairing to a Peanut Butter Burger.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup ground almonds
3 tablespoons Hi-Pro Smooth peanut butter
2 tablespoons agave
2 tablespoons black onyx cocoa powder
1.5 cups quark
½ cup of whey
2 eggs
¼ cup of milk
85% dark chocolate

Optional:
5 Oreos
5 Reece’s Pieces

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Serves: 6

Method:

  1. First, make the base of your cheesecake by mixing the ground almonds, Hi-PRO peanut butter, cocoa powder, and agave syrup. You want to get a thick sort of ‘dough’ that you can spread on the bottom of your nonstick springform cheesecake pan.
  2. Once your base is on the cheesecake pan, make the filling by blending the quark, whey, eggs, milk, and flavoring until you get a creamy almost pancake-like consistency.
  3. Pour the filling on the base.
  4. Throw  a few of your oreo-inspired protein cookies inside. (Optional)
  5. Bake at 325 F (around 160 C) for about 45-50 minutes. 
  6. When your cheesecake feels done but is still somewhat wobbly in the center, take it out or leave in in the oven to cool.
  7. Let it cool in the fridge then before slicing it, add your Reece’s pieces (optional) and poor your melted dark chocolate over the top. Then enjoy every bite.
